James, Stevenson out vs. Nuggets

Nets small forwards Damion James (foot) and DeShawn Stevenson (knee) will miss Wednesday night's game in Denver, the team announced.

Center Mehmet Okur (back) was a game-time decision, but will play around 18 minutes, coach Avery Johnson told reporters, according to the team's official Twitter account.

James will be missing his fourth straight game, while Stevenson will be missing his second. Stevenson had his knee drained prior to Monday night's loss to Atlanta.

Okur had missed the previous two games with back spasms.

The Nets starting lineup will be the same as Monday: Deron Williams, Anthony Morrow, MarShon Brooks, Kris Humphries and Johan Petro.
